The Rembrandts Cash In On Friends' Finale

Pop duo THE REMBRANDTS - who made $18 million (GBP10 million) writing and recording the theme tune to American sitcom FRIENDS - are reforming to cash in on the hysteria sparked by the end of the show.

The I'LL BE THERE FOR YOU singers are eager to capitalise on the end of the mega-successful show - but have no idea how to orchestrate their comeback.

Singer PHIL SOLEM says, "We don't quite know where we're going - but now we're back in the spotlight we're planning to strike while the iron is hot."

The FRIENDS' theme tune has become one of the world's best-known songs but was listed in American music channel VH1's list of THE 50 MOST AWESOMELY BAD SONGS EVER.

However, the duo passionately support the ballad: "We will happily defend I'll Be There For You to anyone

"Who'd have thought those 10 hours dreaming up a catchy little song a decade ago would lead to our defining moment?"

After 10 years, the final episode of Friends reached American screens earlier this month (06MAY04) and will be broadcast in Britain this Friday (28MAY04).
